Pot to flower bed

My husband bought me a beautiful potted valentines rose for a gift, it has lovely pink flowers that are now dying off and I want to know do I dead head these or let them drop off naturally?

The plant has new shoots as weel so I want to plant this in the garden. Its much to big for the pot. Any advice on where to put it? I will try to add a picture but at the mo this website does not like my mac book!

    Yes, I would deadhead it. 

    It needs a sunny spot in the garden - or you could put it in a larger pot.

    Hi Moresthemerrier, Macbook shouldn't be a problem. Photo should be in your Finder, if it's too big, open it in Preview and change size in Tools, then save back to Finder (Desktop). Then open tree icon at the top of your reply post and drag/drop it from Desktop as instructed.
